ABI Kentucky

Expertise and personal care is what we were looking for in an adoption agency in our state of Kentucky. We were immediately welcomed with open arms. The ABI staff went above and beyond to provide us with the information and services needed to bring our son home. They did not only help us complete our family; they became family. We are so thankful for ABI and highly recommend them to anyone who is considering adoption.   –Tori
